Opinion of the European Commission

Today, the European Commission selected 159 projects to be funded under the capacity building strand of Erasmus+ in the field of higher education to support the modernisation and quality of higher education in third countries around the world. All these projects correspond to the overall objective of promoting international cooperation in higher education, improving education systems and enhancing growth and prosperity on a global scale.

As part of projects selected this year, 2500 higher education stakeholders from almost 130 EU countries and around the world will work together to modernise and internationalise higher education. For example, a total 2023 budget of EUR 115.3 million will support the professionalisation of mathematics in Central Africa, higher education in law for equality and justice for vulnerable groups in Latin America, curricula for a sustainable blue economy in the Southern Mediterranean and courses on transformative change in health education in South East Asia. Projects in other regions focus on women’s entrepreneurial skills in Central Asia, preparedness for digital education in the Western Balkans, development of university offices for international relations in the Middle East and curricula for food and nutrition resilience in West Africa.
